Freedom Boat Club Jacksonville Receives Apparel Trademark for Boatanista Brand

Lisa “The Boatanista” Almeida has designed a shirt for women boaters.

Jacksonville, FL, July 06, 2018 --( The definition of Boatanista is: boat•an•is•ta (boat- uh -nee-st uh) noun - A very nautical-minded woman, especially one who works in the boat club industry. Someone who facilitates the boating lifestyle, and her motto would be: Inboard, Outboard, On Board, NEVER BORED.

Lisa “The Boatanista” Almeida coined the term and is now encouraging other women to embrace the Boatanista lifestyle. Do you have what it takes to be a Boatanista? Whether you are a full-blooded Boatanista – a woman who loves and lives for all things boating – or a Boatanista in training, you can let everyone know about your passion with an official Boatanista t-shirt.

Almeida, owner of Freedom Boat Club Jacksonville and a popular spokesperson in northeast Florida for the marine industry, has recently been awarded an apparel trademark for her Boatanista brand. Four years ago, she was awarded a trademark for her alter-ego, The Boatanista.

“The whole idea is to encourage woman boaters,” Almeida said. “Of course, I am a lifelong boater and want to support this wonderful recreation for all people, but I am particularly passionate about giving women the confidence to take the helm. And I wanted to design apparel to help women identify themselves as Boatanistas.”

Almeida has designed a new t-shirt and tank top, now available at
